Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) President Andrew Nthewewe says the move by embattled Horse Shoe Restaurant workers to storm some media houses in defense of the Labour Minister Joyce Nonde is suspicious.

Mr. Nthewewe says it must be understood that the Labour Minister mishandled the matter that is why she is on the limelight.

Mr. Nthewewe says the move by workers to defend the minister even brings more questions because they are the ones who are victimized and wonders what prompted them to do such a thing of defending the minister.

He suspects that there must be a hidden hand controlling these workers.

Mr. Nthewewe says both President Edgar Lungu and Ms Nonde Simukoko have created a bad image for themselves for the Labour Minister to fail to resign on moral grounds and the President for failing to fire her after seeing that she mishandled the whole case.

    …it looks like Joyce and her appointing authority are the only ones who seem not to see anything seriously wrong with Horse Shoe saga…. or are they just pretending to…..behind the scene they are cursing themselves…what a fu.ck up….just do the right thing Joyce.. resign- jump before you are pushed……that is a Horse Shoe Gate you are into….
    ..this phenomenon of saying Zambians shall easily forget about it after a while is killing us as a people….remember Mrs Mwanakatwe’s scandalous CEEC loan…its all quiet and buried…even voted into Parley with such a tag on her back…Zambians Zambians please why mother Zambia and you want God to perform a miracle sure…first help yourselves then your God will come in to do his bit…

      The correct way to investigate such a claim would have been for anonymous people to be sent to the horse shoe. let them order and get treated well or badly. A few token pigs…. loops muzungus could be roped in and used as control experiments. then you would know the truth.
      the ministers form of investigation is reminiscent of watching naked gun 2 1/2. comic at least and disgusting at most.

      There is no seriousness in Zambia and it gets worse when those who are supposed to be watchdogs for compatriots and visitors turn to protecting oppression! How does one carry out an investigation with a visit in grandeur? The workers at Horseshoe have their own reasons for coming out the way they have but then should understand what they are getting themselves into should anything turn sour ahead!

      Nice reminder @ scrutinizerer! Mrs Mwanakatwe atop the CEEC loan scandal is part to illegal occupation of office after dissolution of parliament and still owes the nation a reimbursement! At the same time she is continuing to receive emoluments from the taxpayer! Docility and short memory is of unprecedented levels

      contd… believe prayers will move the nation from the doldrums! Didn’t God promise to save Noah from the floods so long he helped himself by constructing the ark! God would have easily performed a miracle by making the ark appear for Noah to board but He didn’t, Noah had to work at it! Zambians learn to help yourselves first!

    Three words :poverty under pf. With poverty it is easy to buy people for few peanuts. If these guys get fired they can’t support their families and will starve to death.

    Mwe bantu, including YALI, can’t you do your own objective and empirical investigation? Investigate both Horse Shoe and also the whistle blower, Mika Mwambazi Bwembya scientifically and objectively. The comments, from YALI and most bloggers, all seem to conclude that the whistle blower is telling the truth and Horse Shoe is guilty and the workers at Horse Shoe are being coerced into defending their employers out of fear? What is the basis for this conclusion? What if the whistle blower is lying? Be impartial and look at both sides of the story. And why do people keep referring to the owners of Horse Shoe as foreigners or Greeks when those of us who know the owners and whose views are being ignored know that they are Zambians from Chinsali District?

      Oh come off it and get the horse dick out of your mouth and from down your throat. I and others that have been to that restaurant know precisely how freakin racist those @ss wipes are. We have taken international visitors there and seen how the staff and management take it up the @ss to please foreigners and literally ignore black africans. No need for a wanker to tell me anything. How the fvck does the whole freakin minister go to the joint with staff an all but announce her presence and position with a 21 fart salute. She and her whole staff got the full treatment. That’s as dumb as the communications minister going to airtel, mtn and zamtel and stating that they are there in all pomp and splendour to find out if they are colluding on prices? STYOPET

      @ 4.1 that is their own personal problems, outside of Zambia, there are simply blacks with no roots. The majority of coloured(biracial people) don’t know in 90% of the cases their white(MEN) parents or black(MEN).

      YALI cannot “definitely ” say it’s the “workers who are victimized ” unless they have done their own independent investigation. Why do they want the workers to say the opposite?

    The issue lies with labour laws and hospitality law. Even if the employees say nothing happened either because they were threatened, the customer was a witness and was subjected to discrimination, harassment, threats etc. This is what the du-ll minister is failing to understand, The findings she published all have to do wit abuse of employees by the owners of the establishment. That labour minister needs to be fired!She is very incompetent.

    Those workers are fools, they will leave to regret. That’s what ignorance & illiteracy can do. No one will come to their aid at the time they will need help. South Africans are better performers in such instances. They don’t pretend but Zambians it’s all like that. That’s why even the minister behaved like that they have no stamina to wage war against such.
